I Meant To Do Better!

I meant to do better! Researchers from John HopkinsBloomberg School of Public Health reporting in the American Journal ofObstetrics and Gynecology in the September 2011 issue have found that womenplanning pregnancy mean to change their poor health habits when trying to bepregnant; but the good intentions of quitting alcohol and stopping smokingbefore conceiving just don’t get done. And neither did the women in their studywho were trying to get pregnant cut back on caffeine consumption while theywere trying to conceive. This study didn’t report other health behaviors that impactpregnancy health, but we might extrapolate that this behavior applies fairlyuniversally. The message is that we need new strategies to buckle down and makepositive changes when trying to conceive. If you have a strategy that workedvery well for you, let us know!
